Hi! I'm Alma, 30 years young, Dutch, born and raised close to Amsterdam. I studied Interdisciplinary Social Science and since then I have had several jobs. For example in the tourist sector, later as a market researcher and coordinator for psychology studies.
I have travelled quite a bit and since 2023 I emigrated to France. Which means I'm learning a new language again and got interested in teaching a language myself!
Hobbies: running, climbing, dancing, painting, reading... boardgames, music, movies, good conversations, traveling and being outside for a good hike.
And now, who are you? =)
Me as a Teacher
My aim is to organize a lesson in a fun and relaxed way. For me it's important that you feel safe and supported. Because when you feel relaxed it's more fun and easier to actually learn something.
I'm patient and will I will encourage you to talk Dutch using themes and images. If you have an idea for a theme you are ofcourse welcome to suggest it too.
My lessons & teaching style
The focus in my lessons is on having a talk together according to a theme or picture. After every lesson I will give you a list with some words/phrases which you found difficult, so you can look at them again after our conversation. Are you a beginner with Dutch? No problem, we can switch to English to clarify/explain how to say certain things.
